Research has time and time again shown that you will engage and motivate others with the use of humor. Ask any college student that sat through a semester of Boredom 101 to know the truth in that.
If you plan to be productive, lead, motivate, just be a good human being, you’ll need to have a regular dose of laughter. How you do that is up to you. How many times a week do you talk about the drama in the news, how bad work was, how much things cost? What if someone sat down with you though, and told you a joke, how they’re trip went, and how the things that matter most to them were things you can’t buy. Oh no, you might smile and enjoy it!!
Even the silly jokes can make you smile. Won’t start though unless you make the effort.
Ok, ok, I’ll start. What did the snail say while sitting on the turtles back?
Wheeeee!! (Thanks Casidhe)
